AT&T Plans "Video Share" 3G App Built on IMS

AT&T is preparing to launch a 3G service called Video Share this summer in more than 50 markets in the U.S. The service allows users to send a live video stream to a recipient during a standard voice call. Beginning with a normal wireless phone call, customers can hit one button to add a live video stream, allowing the called party to see what the caller is seeing while they're talking. The service also allows customers to switch the direction of the video stream during the same phone call. Customers must be in an area served by the company's 3G network and have a Video Share-enabled phone.

Video Share runs on AT&T's recently deployed IMS platform.
